To Maj. Gen. James B. McPherson

Holly Springs, Miss. Jan. 4, 1863

BRIG. GEN'L. J. B. MCPHERSON,
ABBEVILLE, MISS.,

It looks evident that Van Dorn, Forrest and Roddy are going to unite their forces and attack Corinth, or make a general raid upon the roads. Van Dorn is now marching towards Jacinto. Roddy is at Tuscumbia, and Forrest back of Savanna. There is no special object longer in holding the Tallahatchie. 1 You may therefore fall back as far as you can to-morrow.

U. S. GRANT,
Maj. Gen'l.

Copies, DLC-USG, V, 18, 30; DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Letters Sent. O. R., I, xvii, part 2, 532.

On Jan. 4, 1863, USG telegraphed to Maj. Gen. James B. McPherson. "A wagon train was attacked near the Tallaloosa this evening. I have no Cavalry to send after them. If Grierson is where he can be sent send him immediately." Copies, DLC-USG, V, 18, 30; DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Letters Sent. On the same day, McPherson wrote to USG. "I have sent to Colonel Grierson at Waterford to move with two battalions of cavalry immediately toward Tallaloosa. Colonel Hatch has three companies of cavalry at Chulahoma, and I have directed him to send two companies more to the same point, and then to move from there up to the south and west of Chulahoma." O.R., I, xvii, part 2, 533-34.
